The Loveland Police Department needs your help.
The Loveland Police Department needs your help. We are a team of 17 sworn police officers and 3 administrative members doing our best to serve our community of 13,000 residents, and even more visitors. Each year those 20 people answer more than 10,000 calls for service. We could not possibly do it without you. Together, we are partners working to keep Loveland great.
Each year LPD invites the community to learn about it’s police department and help make a difference in Loveland.
This year we will host the 20th Loveland Citizen’s Police Academy. Each year LPD invites the community to learn about it’s police department and help make a difference in Loveland. Over the years we have made many changes to the academy. Several years ago, we partnered with the Miami Township Police Department and the Milford Police Department to host a joint academy. This unique innovation is efficient, fosters collaboration between the agencies, and builds relationships that last.
Do you want to:
Ride along with a police officer?
Watch a K9 search for drugs?
Learn how a Taser works?
Face down an armed aggressor?
Have you ever wanted to ride along with a police officer? Have you ever wanted to watch a K9 search for drugs? Maybe, you always wanted to know how a Taser works? Or maybe you always wanted to know what it feels like to face down an armed aggressor?
Graduate, and Loveland City Councilmember, Angela Settell said, “One of the most rewarding and educational experiences you will ever have is to attend the Loveland Citizen’s Police Academy. When I signed up for the class, I did not realize the lasting impression the dedicated men and women of our police force would have on me. Catching a glimpse of their duties and “standing in their shoes” during simulated crime scenarios gave me a greater understanding and appreciation of decisions they must make. That is why I fully support them and their ongoing training and equipment needs. I am proud to be a Graduate and member of the Alumni Association and urge you to experience for yourself. Sign up today!”
